'Top Gun 2' is ''closer and closer'' to happening according to Jerry Bruckheimer.

The legendary Hollywood producer is working on a sequel to the classic 1986 fighter pilot movie - which starred Tom Cruise - and is hopeful it will go into production soon, with the actor reprising his role as Maverick.

He told The Huffington Post: ''We've been trying to get that movie made for 30 years, and I think we're getting closer and closer.

''Don [Simpson] and I tried to develop something, we didn't succeed. [Tom] Cruise took over, and he tried to develop something, and he didn't succeed. Now we're back at it.''

Jerry added it was the director of the original movie, Tony Scott, who came up with the current storyline before he passed away in 2012.

He added: ''The concept is, basically, are the pilots obsolete because of drones. Cruise is going to show them that they're not obsolete. They're here to stay.

''It's just getting to the starting place. Fortunately for Tom, he's very busy, so you have to find a slot he can fit into and get a budget that [studio] Paramount feels they can make the picture.''

So far no director or estimated release date for the project has been set.
